Default New Build Suggestions

Being that I'm a bit out of the loop on new hardware, I need some help putting together a decent-performing rig for a client of mine. I need case, motherboard, and CPU only and I'd like to keep it below $400.

TIA.

could probably go with a different case, as the haf is meant to provide lots of room and high airflow. these are also good for less money.

That x4 940 deal is one of the best you can find right now. What type of client is this? For the more conservative type client, the Antec 300 is a pretty nice case, and looks plain enough. :P

Yeah you can actually get pretty fancy with $400 if you only need those 3 pieces.

No PSU?

And cash to spare

EDIT: I should get a job at Antec with all the case recommendations I throw around. Oh well, they're still great cases for the price imho.
